Thanks Burdle. I thought I'd take a look here first to see if there was already a SB friendly one. I checked the internet and came up with these. Tell me what you think. I will be substituting the white rice with Basmati white.
Red Beans and Rice
1 quart dried red beans
2 quarts water
1 pound ham or salt pork (substitute Canadian bacon? not sure here)
1 carrot, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
pepper, to taste
salt, to taste
Soak the beans overnight in cold water; drain. Heat the beans in about 2 quarts of water, add all ingredients except salt, and boil for at least 2 hours. When beans are tender, mash them up a bit. Serve on white boiled rice with meat and vegetables on top.
Serves 10 to 12
Caribbean Rice and Beans
dry white wine
1 large red bell pepper; roasted, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 16 oz cans black beans, drained (or red)
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3 cups white rice, cooked
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper, to taste
Saute red peppers, green peppers and garlic in wine until wilted. Add black beans, vinegar and Tabasco. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in rice and oregano. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Serve accompanied by additional Tabasco.
